This is one of two in-gallery videos featured in "Illuminated Palaces: Extra-Illustrated Books from the Huntington Library," an exhibition focused on an eccentric art of a bygone era.

Inlaying, demonstrated here, is one of the processes involved in the once-popular extra-illustration of books, the subject of the exhibition that features more than 40 of these works.

"Illuminated Palaces: Extra-Illustrated Books from the Huntington Library" ran from July 27 to Nov. 18, 2013. For more on the show, visit huntington.org/WebAssets/Templates/exhibitiondetail.aspx?id=14352.
